The Trust’s People’s Plaque scheme highlights 30 fascinating people and institutions from the very local to the international. Lionel Lukin who invented the lifeboat has no plaque in London, neither does Syd Barrett, one of the founders of the Pink Floyd. Did you know that ‘having a kip’ derives from the lodging house of the same name in Short's Gardens where ‘residents’ slept leaning over a rope to maximise space?
Sponsors' names are inscribed on a small plaque installed at eye level below the main plaque.
This will also feature a QR code leading to further information on this site about the person or institution commemorated.
